Learn More About Heritage
Welcome to Heritage College & Seminary!
Thank you for your interest in learning more about Heritage College & Seminary!
Our mission at Heritage is to, “equip men and women for life and ministry.” You might ask yourself, “What does that mean?”
It means that we want to prepare you to live your life for Christ. We desire to help you grow in your faith and knowledge of God and prepare you to live a life filled with purpose—to share the life-transforming hope of Christ and be a disciple who makes disciples wherever God may call you.
So, whether you feel led towards serving the church in ministry in pastoral ministry, global missions, or parachurch ministry. Or, that you desire to take one year to study the Bible and grow in your faith as you learn in a Christ-centred community—Heritage exists to give you a foundation in God’s Word and the opportunity to learn more about how God has uniquely gifted you to serve Him.
